"From grunge to gorgeous -- that was my dream. When I
moved from my decrepit, 60's era bungalow into a beautiful, modern
home, I knew that my dream was within my grasp. Unfortunately,
all of my grungy furniture had come with me. It had to be replaced.
And that's when I called Tobi Brockway.
The transformation from grunge to gorgeous is now complete.
It definitely couldn't have happened without Tobi. She is a talented,
knowledgeable interior designer whose expertise transformed my
home. Fabrics, furniture, paint, window treatments, lighting
-- Tobi always managed to find something that perfectly matched
my vision of what I wanted my home to be.
Got an interior design dream? Call Tobi, and she'll make it
-- T. Rotella, Niagara Falls
|"Working with Tobi
for our home renovation was a tremendous experience from start
to finish. Her knowledge, professionalism, expertise, eye for
design and function and candor were exactly what we needed. There
are times when projects of this nature can be overwhelming, but
having Tobi on our side was exactly what we needed to help make
vital decisions. Tobi also worked extremely well with our Contractor
and they formed an excellent working relationship all in an effort
to get our project completed and looking fantastic. She also
figured out our style very quickly and was able to bring us ideas
that she thought would be best, but suited our preferences. Working
with Tobi was a pleasure to say the least. We would - and already
have - recommend Tobi Brockway Interiors to family and friends
and are grateful for all of her work on our behalf!"
-- Brian and Andrea Rose, St. Catharines
"My objective was to redesign my ensuite bathroom to
create a larger shower. Tobi understood my needs and worked with
me to design a functional work of art. She grasped my style and
transformed the space by balancing shape, texture and colour.
She maximized the space by using a pocket door, wall built-ins
for the mirrored medicine cabinets, towel racks, etc. She advised
on the most effective and appropriate finishes, which brought
the room together. Her tradespeople were experts. She was readily
available for consultation or problem solving. I now have a wonderful
shower and still have my 2 sinks in a beautiful new custom vanity. I
enjoy the spa-like feel of my ensuite every day. Tobi and her
tradespeople exceeded my expectations.
In addition to the ensuite, Tobi helped me select and install
window treatments throughout my home. I wanted the remote control
automated open/close features, which was challenging due to the
large size of one of the windows. Tobi knew about the quality
of the motors and operating devices, and I was very pleased with
the results. Again, she was able to understand my style and translate
that into lovely, textured window treatments. I would highly
recommend Tobi to people who need any interior design work
and who want the highest quality results. I would be delighted
to work with her in the future."
-- S. O'Connor, Niagara-on-the-Lake
"Everyone who enters our great room immediately says
"wow"! And the credit goes to Tobi Brockway.
It was a pleasure working with Tobi. We worked as a team updating
our kitchen, selecting wall colours and designing window treatments
for our 15 year old home. The initial timeline was short as my
partner and I wanted to have our open-concept bungalow painted
before moving in, including painting the bleached oak kitchen
Tobi understood our timelines and worked with us for realistic
deliverables on the renovations which followed. She has excellent
trade and master crafts people. Tobi expertly guided us in selecting
a quality countertop, a fabulous complementary backsplash, appliances,
supplementary cabinetry and the piece de resistance, the
wonderful island design. The island is now fully functional and
her creative design optimized the allowable space, and incorporates
the natural elements of our view, skylights and layout of the
open concept kitchen. The quality of the cabinetry is outstanding
and obvious. Everyone loves to sit at this incredible island
which is a focal point in our home.
Her skill, professionalism and ability to convey ideas and
concepts make Tobi a solid person to work with. She respected
our budget, was always grounded and practical as we needed her
to be, and incredibly knowledgeable about her industry and profession
which I truly appreciated.
The tag line for Tobi Brockway Interiors is, 'Style Simplicity
Serenity', and this is what we wanted our home to convey, along
with a welcoming and cozy feel at the same time. Mission accomplished.
I look forward to working with Tobi again next year!"
-- K. Glasner, Niagara-on-the-Lake
"When we decided to downsize, my husband and I chose
a new condo in the heart of the city. When it came time to select
all the components -- floors, kitchen cabinetry and design, tiles,
etc. -- we decided to hire a decorator to help us out. We
chose Tobi because of her experience with condos and builders. We
were also impressed with her design portfolio.
With Tobi, we planned our new home in every aspect from colours
to light fixtures, window treatments, right through to bed sheets.
She was mindful of our budget and tastes and contributed many
excellent ideas. Her associates which included furniture makers,
painters, an electrician and a handyman were all very professional
and did wonderful work.
Tobi succeeded in all our requirements: Her design for
our condo was unique, makes an efficient, functional use of space,
and, even more importantly, is true to our personal tastes. We
-- D. Maloney, Downtown, Toronto
|"When we decided
to update our dining room furniture, our first thought was 'time
to call Tobi.' We knew that increasing the size of the dining
room table would mean new chairs, rug and sideboard. Having
an established working relationship with Tobi made the process
a breeze. She knew our aesthetic and we knew we could trust
her. The project was incredibly fulfilling. She easily
incorporated colours and motifs from the adjacent living room
that she had designed for us earlier, and brought in touches
of our personality with a custom designed rug."
-- A. Demers and B. Collins, Summerhill, Toronto
|"I had put off renovating
my master ensuite and powder bathroom for six years as the thought
of doing it stressed me out. I know what my strengths are
and decorating/renovating is not one of them. So, enter
Tobi! She made the process pain free -- just what I wanted. She
sourced and managed all of the suppliers and trades, and when
some minor deficiencies arose, she dealt with them to my complete
satisfaction. While she worked with my style and colour
preferences, she was good at stretching my thinking and offering
design suggestions. Thanks Tobi! It looks wonderful."
-- R. Matsumoto, Toronto
|"I decided to hire
an interior decorator because I felt that I didn't have the skills
or the time to put together a co-ordinated look. It was my first
home purchase and I wanted to have a place that I was excited
about, that reflected me. Tobi Brockway certainly has the skills,
expertise and experience and the end results show that I was
listened to and my wishes considered. I wanted a colourful
space and as each step was completed -- painting and wallpapering,
window treatment, rugs and furniture -- I was thrilled by the
look! The dining room is especially fabulous!"
-- C. Sargeant, Midtown, Toronto
"For the last 40 years we have lived in large single
family homes. It was with some trepidation that we approached
our downsizing to a much smaller downtown condo. We knew that
space planning and complimentary décor would be essential
to a comfortable and pleasant new home. Contacting Tobi Brockway
was the first step.
Tobi's planning allowed us to maximize the space in our condo.
The best part was that Tobi worked very hard to make sure the
condo reflected our lifestyle. Our biggest fear going into the
project was that we would end up with a space that reflected
the decorator more than ourselves.
Tobi has a great eye for colour and knows what will work.
Having access to Tobi's suppliers was invaluable and also saved
us time and money. The final result is amazing!"
-- D. and J. Taylor, Downtown, Toronto
|"I hired Tobi
Brockway to help me renovate and decorate my condo
and the end result exceeded my expectations. She guided
me in the purchase of my furniture and accessories as well as
paint colour choices. Tobi really listened to what my needs
were and took the time to get to know my style preferences.
She always made me feel I was the one making the decisions. The
result is a beautiful and functional space that I love and
will enjoy for years. On top of that, she was clear, organized,
accessible, worked within my budget and always met deadlines.
As a result, the process went smoothly and was surprisingly stress-free.
Tobi is a true professional and I would recommend her to
anyone without hesitation."
-- G. Lima, Toronto
"With repair work on our ceilings, walls and flooring
that had to be done from a leaky roof, it seemed like an ideal
time to proceed with a major decorating update. I felt overwhelmed
and unable to make all these decisions without some professional
advice. The gods must have been smiling when Designers' Walk
referred me to Tobi Brockway.
Tobi has helped us through each step of this undertaking and
has great ideas as well as great patience. She has also been
the source of expert craftsmen who have done excellent work and
executed her ideas in a very professional manner. Tobi is dedicated
to providing top-notch service to her clients and yet will not
compromise if she feels that we are heading in the wrong direction.
In addition, she has a delightful personality and a most friendly
and understanding manner and is a pleasure to work with.
All in all, we are very pleased with the interior design advice
provided by Tobi and would certainly use her services again.
We recommend her without reservation."
-- D. Crossan, Toronto
|"I was completely
overwhelmed by all of the choices for furniture, fabrics, paint
colours, and lighting. Tobi worked with me to develop a beautiful,
unique, and liveable space that is truly mine. The process was
smooth and easy from the start, and the result is a hundred times
better than what I could have put together on my own. I highly
recommend working with Tobi. She is very organized, returns calls
and emails promptly, and is a highly skilled interior decorator.
In other words, Tobi is a true professional! She delivered an
amazing result, on time, on budget, and completely stress-free."
-- M. Antler, Downtown condo
|"Moving into our
new condo, we needed to purchase new furniture, light fixtures
and accessories and we wanted to get expert advice on what would
be ideal for the space and give our new home that "wow factor".
Tobi presented innovative ideas that met our needs, connected
us with excellent suppliers, and was very flexible in meeting
our busy schedules. She even made our moving day enjoyable by
coordinating all of our deliveries on site. Tobi is very client
focused and is a delight to work with. We could not have imagined
taking on a project of this scale without her. We highly recommend
-- The Wheelers, High Park
|"We retained Tobi
to decorate our family room and kitchen in our new house. She
helped us select window treatments, furniture, art, light fixtures
and a beautiful wool rug, as well as design the layout of the
room. The colour scheme is exceptional and the coordination of
the furnishings is simply breathtaking. In addition to having
a true eye for design, Tobi is the consummate professional, who
works with us according to our schedule and budget. She always
returns all calls promptly and addresses any concerns immediately
to ensure we are completely satisfied. Tobi manages to make the
decorating process fun and stress-free. We will continue to use
Tobi's services in the future, as time and money permit, to finish
other rooms in the house and highly recommend her to anyone else
searching for a good designer."
-- M. Vardy, Etobicoke
|"We have almost
completed a total transformation of my main floor including a
fantastic revitalization of my kitchen, and now we're starting
the second floor. From the beginning, Tobi has been wonderful
to work with. She really listens and works with your personal
tastes and lifestyle. She gently guides you in the right direction
and the result is fantastic. One of Tobi's biggest strengths
is her project management skills, which really gives me confidence.
She is very well connected in the industry and her suppliers
have been excellent. I had no idea my rooms could look this good!!
It's just a treat to be at home. Thanks Tobi!"
